Problem connecting Samsung 500GB Spinpoint f3

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I disconnected my old Hitachi 250GB HDD and proceeded to connect my new Samsung HDD to my PC when I realised out of the loose cables that only my SATA cable would connect to the Samsung HDD. The Hitachi HDD used an adaptor to fit cables into it, and those cables and the adaptor wouldn't fit into the Samsung HDD... I'm not very experienced with the innards of PC's...

Here's the adaptor that was connected to the Hitachi HDD

Could someone give me help please?

Your old drive was a PATA drive with an SATA adapter on it. You attached it to your system with a 4-pin floppy power connector and a SATA data cable.

Your new drive is native SATA and does not require an adapter. You do however require an SATA power cable, instead of the 4-pin power cable.

You want this:



If your power supply doesn't have any cables of the second type you will need a 4-pin to SATA power adapter cable:

Ah I found a SATA power cable, it was tucked away in my PC somewhere.. silly me.

I connected it but when I boot up I get a message telling me to Reboot or select proper boot device.

The cables are tightly connected, I made sure.

Go into your bios and be sure that the drive is on top of the drive order and on top of the boot order.And yeah if it's a new drive you have to re install windows.

Oh, okay cheers.

I notice theres a slot left in the Samsung HDD but I can't find a cable to connect to it.

The slot has 8 bronze coloured pins (sorry very PC illiterate).

Those are for jumpers, no need to bother with those.

Alright .

Well I put the Windows 7 Disc in and everything seems to be normal now, my BIOS detects the HDD too.

Thank you all VERY much!

Edit: Rep+ you all for the kind help.
